Election Day, Nov. 6, is rapidly approaching, and deadlines to register are even closer. High Black voter turnout will be instrumental for Democrats to retake Congress, as well as gubernatorial races in Florida, Maryland, and Georgia—three states where Black candidates could make history.
Deadlines to register have passed in Alaska and Rhode Island, and some states don’t allow online registration. Here is a list of upcoming deadlines in the other states and the District of Columbia:
Arkansas: In-person or by mail deadline is Oct. 9.
Maine: Mail deadline is Oct. 16. In-person registration is permitted through Election Day.
Michigan: In-person or by mail deadline is Oct. 9.
Mississippi: In-person deadline is Oct. 8 and by mail on Oct. 9.

New Hampshire: In person continues through Election Day. Mailed forms must be received by Oct. 27.
New Jersey: In-person or by mail deadline is Oct. 16.
North Carolina: In-person or by mail deadline is Oct. 12. (28 counties affected by Hurricane Florence have an extension to Oct. 15.) From Oct. 17 to Nov. 3, residents can register and vote simultaneously at early voting sites.
